Through the magic of Zoom video conferencing, paulmerca.blogspot.com is pleased to present the first of a series of video interviews with some of the influencers and athletes in the sport.
In this first episode, I’m joined by Larry Eder, the publisher of RunBlogRun.com, and Jim Gerweck, a former writer for Running Times magazine.
Larry has covered numerous Olympics and world championships in his career, while Jim has made a name for himself, particularly on the East Coast, not only as a writer, but as a coach (he coached 2019 world championships marathoner Carrie Dimoff in high school), and a race director and course measurer.
We talked about the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics, recapped the 2020 indoor season, the US Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta and the shoe controversy leading up to the race, and got some thoughts on a possible 2020 outdoor season, once the go ahead is given by the government agencies and medical experts.
